Description

Victor® Electronic Rat Trap With Batteries

 

The Victor® Electronic Rat Trap uses a high-voltage shock to kill rats quickly and humanely. It is very easy to use; simply bait, place, turn on and empty. The trap kills one rat per setting, and can kill up to 50 rats per set of 4 "C" batteries (included). Disposal is easy, too – offering a no-touch, no-see experience.  

 

Easy to Use

The Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is extremely easy to use. Simply bait, place, turn on and empty. The trap is equipped with advanced smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters the trap.

Humane Kill

Once inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and jolting the rat with a 4,000 volt shock. Since rats can restart their hearts after an electric shock, this trap applies a continuous shock for two minutes to ensure a complete, humane kill.

Indicator Light

After the rat is dispatched, the trap’s indicator light flashes green for up to 24 hours to indicate a kill. If the trap has low batteries, the light will flash red.

No-see, No-touch Experience

To dispose of the rat, just dump the rodent into the trash without ever having to see or touch it. The trap can then be reset and reused, or discarded if you prefer. To reset, add more bait, then place and turn the trap on. The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is acceptable for use anywhere indoors, or anywhere it’s not exposed to the elements. The trap doesn’t use poisons or chemicals, it’s safe to use around children and pets when used as directed.

 

The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is easy to set and use. Here’s How:

  1. Remove the battery cover. Insert 4 "C" batteries.
  2. Replace the battery cover.
  3. Bait the trap through the hole in the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, bacon, dry pet food, nuts, etc. Be sure to use a Q-tip, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.
  4. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The trap should be placed lengthwise against the wall with the entrance hole nearest the wall.
  5. Turn on the trap – a green light will blink once showing the trap is working properly.
  6. A blinking green light will indicate a kill. Dispose of the dead rodent, bait, reset and place for continued rodent control.

AMAZING TRAP By Don

Fantastic product. My trap is killing a mouse a day. I love this trap versus other rodent killing products. It’s humane - no prolong death from poison and snap traps also sometime catch the hind end, resulting in a painful death. Extra bonus is no mess! No blood. Desposing of the corpse is easy - just tip the trap over into the garbage or a plastic bag. I use 3-4 pieces of dry dog food as bait and this just goes in garbage too. I would have given the trap 5+ stars but for the fact the battery lid doesn’t stay clipped closed, as it should. I have to hold it closed with my hand when handling trap. Not a big deal, but not perfect. If you have rodents, this is the trap to use.

Super frustrated!!! By Sam

Bought the electric rat trap, worked great at first. Caught 3 in one week. Then the green light wouldnt blink when I turned it on. Got brand new batteries, cleaned the inside like the web site says to do, tried again and still nothing. waited a few days bought another at got a rat right away. cleaned it and tried to use again and it wouldn't turn on. Decided to try the first one and it worked. Wow right? NO!!! turned it off, took it to the spot where the rats are and tried it again and nothing. Took the batteries out and put them back in and nothing again. kept taking batteries out and putting back and eventually it turned back on but the green light didnt blink. It just stayed on and the whole thing buzzed until I turned it back off. Tried the new one again and low and behold it turned on this time. Set it and got another rat within a couple hours. Tried to use it again and nothing. I can probably spend a few more hours tinkering on it and it might work again but I just dont have that kinda free time. Great Product but very unreliable.

Not so well By Cal

Response From Victor®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. When the traps are first turned on, does the green light blink once and then turn off? If so, the trap is working correctly. We recommend cleaning the traps. To do so, turn the power switch off and remove the batteries. Wipe the metal plates with a damp cloth (using water or unscented dish detergent only). Allow the trap to air dry completely. Replace the batteries and turn the unit back on for repeated use.

The only rat trap you will ever need By Heather

These are the best rat traps ever! We had a huge infestation and killed 36 rats over the last 5 days!! Well worth the money! We tried all the other traps and bait but nothing came close to these traps! I hate rats and with this device you don't have to touch them. Kills them instantly and easy to dump out and reuse! Don't waste your money on anything else. I swear. My husband and I are now experts and want to do an infomercial for this product because it truly is amazing!

The best product I've found for rat and mice control EVER! By Bump

10 days and going strong. Heard some scratching and gnawing like some big critter was trying to get in to home. It was keeping my wife up at night. Bought three traps and on the first night every one zapped several mice. The next night I put peanut butter in a bottle cap and caught two good sized rats. Had no idea they existed in the area. Caught two more and cant be happier with the electronic rat/mice trap.

Cannot clean the trap properly. By Steve

I would have given this trap 5 stars but I have down graded to 3. Urine from a mouse is the culprit as far as I can tell. When I reset the trap after wiping it out and refreshing the bait it then starts arcing somewhere. I can hear it but I cannot see it. Normally when I have this issue I can observe the arc in a dark environment but not this time. My complaint is, there is no way to readily take this apart to fully clean it and re-assemble it. Maybe I need to become the competition. When they work they work great when they get dirty they cannot be cleaned. I have many Victor Traps. I had a single kill mouse trap destroyed by urine now I have three multi-kill mouse traps. I like the product but it has some drawbacks. I am now ordering some advanced rat traps for chipmunks. As for the issue of not catching anything in the traps. You may be experiencing voles. They are mouse-like at half the size of my thumb and they steal the food while touching only one plate. One of them screwed up in my trap. That's how I found out where my bait was going.

Q&A
Q.Why does the trap keep buzzing continually, not just when I turn it on?
A.

This trap may make a slight buzzing noise when it is first turned on. The noise will be very brief and only last for a moment or two. If the trap is continually buzzing, we recommend replacing it. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.

Q.So, if it's blinking green light and nothing is in it, im assuming the rodent got shocked not killed? Any recommendations?
A.

We recommend cleaning the trap. First turn the trap off and remove the batteries. Then, wipe down the metal plates with a damp cloth. After the trap has air dried, the trap can be baited with a toothpick amount of peanut butter on the back wall, the batteries can be replaced and the trap turned back on.

Q.After cleaning out the trap, it still flashes a red light when turned on. I have tried soaking it in water to clean, but still have the red light. What should I try next?
A.

Please insert new batteries (not rechargeable ones) and see if the trap will function properly. Feel free to give us a call at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) if further troubleshooting is then needed.

FAQs

Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What position should the switch be in to turn it on?

A: For the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap (model M240), the on position is a dash “-“ and the off position is an “O”

Q: Is the buzzing/clicking normal?

A: The buzzing and slight clicking sound with the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is normal during the start-up of the trap. When you first turn the trap on, the green light will blink momentarily and then you will hear the buzzing or a slight clicking sound indicating that you trap is working properly and starting up.

Q: How do I bait it?/What should I use to bait it?

A: To bait the Electronic Rat Trap, first make sure the trap is turned off. Place the bait along or on the back wall of the trap. Be sure to use gloves or a tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap. We’ve carefully researched dry pet food and found it an excellent lure. Other dried baits (nuts, dehydrated fruit, etc.) can also work well. Goopy Bait Note: Please don’t place moist or goopy bait in your Electronic Rat Trap. If you plan on using goopy bait, like peanut butter, place it on the back wall with a Q-tip. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)

Q: How do I clean the trap?

A: Through repeat use and baiting, dust and debris can settle on the metal plates inside the trap, so we recommend that you clean your trap between each use. To clean the trap:

  • Turn the power switch off and remove the batteries
  • Wipe the metal plates with a damp cloth (use water or unscented dish detergent only).
  • Allow the trap to air dry completely.
  • Replace the batteries and turn the unit back on for repeated use.

Q: Can it be used outdoors?

A: The Electronic Rat Trap is recommended for indoor use only. This trap was designed and manufactured to be used indoors. If this trap is used outside, the unit could potentially short out due to weather conditions, such as rain.

Q: What may affect the effectiveness of an electronic trap?

A: To ensure that your trap works when it is supposed to, keep the metal plates clean so the trap won’t trigger at the wrong time.

  • Don’t over-bait, as excess food could drop onto the plates and activate the trap, after which any rodent may safely enter to remove the food.
  • Make sure that the plates are clear of any debris, especially urine or hair from a recent kill that may interfere with the unit’s proper function. Remember, both plates need to be clean so that the electric circuit is made complete by the rodent stepping on both.

Q:What does it mean when the light blinks green? Red?

A: When you turn on the trap, the green light will stay on for 2 seconds to confirm the trap is on. Then the light is supposed to go off. The green light will also blink to indicate a successful kill; however, in order to conserve battery, it only flashes about every 7 seconds.  A blinking red light indicates that the batteries are running low and will need to be replaced.
